Preview: Huddersfield Town vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

Sports Mole casts its eye forward to preview Tuesday night's Championship match between Huddersfield Town and Brighton & Hove Albion.

In-form Huddersfield Town will fancy making it four wins in five Championship games when ice-cold Brighton & Hove Albion visit the John Smith's Stadium on Tuesday night.

After a tough start to his Terriers reign, Chris Powell has overseen an impressive run of three wins and a draw in Huddersfield's last four games to move the West Yorkshire side away from the drop zone.

On Saturday they overcame struggling Blackpool 4-2 at home thanks to a lightning start which saw three goals go in before the 20-minute mark.

Powell has no new injury concerns and could go with the same XI against Brighton, but Nahki Wells will want to be included after dropping to the bench and might fancy his chances of forming a strike partnership with loanee Grant Holt.

Visitors Brighton are now eight games without a win after Saturday's 2-1 defeat at home to Middlesbrough - a result which ended a run of four straight league draws.

The Seagulls have slumped to 20th in the table and now sit just a point off the relegation zone.

Sami Hyypia might have to make do without Joao Teixeira after the Liverpool loanee picked up a head injury against Boro. Paddy McCourt is the most likely to replace him in the starting XI.

Huddersfield haven't won in four games against Brighton, with both games last season finishing as draws.
